It is such a joy working with Chris on his music. We share a passion for refusing to accept barriers between different music genres. I find the energy , imagination and therefore the new sonorities that Chris manages to harvest from the String Quartet really inspiring. Notwithstanding the chances we have had , during our long career, to work with some of the most interesting musicians of our age , the Balanescu Quartet's collaboration with Chris Goulstone is one of the most enduring, fruitful and enjoyable of them all.
